Delivery Reports

I have just come from EE where I was getting delivery reports with no problems. I never knew 02 never have done delivery reports unless you add a code at start of message until recently after being with them. Is there a reason to this and are they ever going to allow this standard function? And what is the code?

*0# and there's no chance of any change from O2.
It's always been this way even before O2 was O2.

It would obviously put more strain on an already creaking network.....

Re: Delivery Reports

Hello @Anonymous, welcome to the O2 community!

As @MI5 said, the ‘delivery report’ function is not supported on the O2 network. If you’d like to receive delivery reports, you can enter *0# followed by your text message and then send the message as you usually would.

Please let us know how it goes Wave

Re: Delivery Reports

The advice I got (add *0#) worked perfectly. Thank you.
